Note: Advance RSVPs are full. Seating may be available on a first-come, first-served basis the night of the event.

Join KUOW's Marcie Sillman in an exclusive talk with Virginia Wright about her legacy in the arts.

Wright and her late husband Bagley Wright have had an indelible impact on Seattle’s cultural landscape.

Bagley Wright built the Space Needle, but the Wrights also built things that aren’t as visible: arts institutions. In 2008, the Wrights donated their collection of modern and contemporary art, the largest in the Pacific Northwest, to the Seattle Art Museum.

See Virginia Wright, now in her late 80s, in a stage interview at Seattle Art Museum, where she’ll reflect on her childhood in Seattle, her entrée into the arts and the legacy she leaves behind.

SAM's “Big Picture: Art After 1945” celebrates the tremendous gift of Seattle the Wrights. This exhibition features many of these works, which have transformed SAM’s modern and contemporary art collection.

Please arrive at least one hour before the start of the talk so you have time to explore the “Big Picture” exhibition. This event falls on SAM’s First Thursday, so admission to "Big Picture" is free. The exhibition "Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style" is half off.
